How To Get The Look: Oscar 2012 Hairstyles, Bold Buns and Side Swept Hair Trend

How To Get The Look: Oscar 2012 Hairstyles, Bold Buns and Side Swept Hair

The 2012 Oscars showcased some beautiful hairstyles, with two unique and polar opposite hair looks that brought to mind two words: classic glamour. Both styles exhumed a classic feel, with all the glamour of Audrey Hepburn and the other Hollywood glamazons. Hair Room Service shows us how to achieve the two hair looks that literally took over the award show: bold buns and side swept hair.

BOLD BUNS (pictured above)

All the buns have one thing in common: they all began their lives as ponytails. To achieve Emma Stone‘s twisted bun simply gather the hair into a tight ponytail with a deep side parting. Smooth with OSiS Magic Anti-Frizz Shine Serum or Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Finishing Treatment to get copious amounts of shine. Separate the ponytail into five different sections. Taking one section at a time, wrap loosely around the base of the ponytail and pin. Taking your next section, weave in and out and around your first section. Proceed in this manner until all sections are weaved throughout each other and pinned securely to the head. Finish the bun off with OSiS Sparkler Shine Spray and OSiS Elastic Fix Strong Hold Hairspray.

The deep side parting with hair on one shoulder is a look anyone can achieve. Apply OSiS Body Me Fullifying Volume Serum and blow out your hair with as much curl and/or body as you choose. Once done, set the style with OSiS Elastic Fix Strong Hold Hairspray. Decide what side of your head you would like your hair to cascade down. Bring all the hair over to the side and place either in front or behind your shoulder. Gather the hair at the nape of your neck and twist it under (if you do not want to see the hair that is secured to your head) or over (if you want to see the twist) and pin with hairpins. Finish with some more OSiS Elastic Fix Strong Hold Hairspray.
